2022 FIFA World Cup Belgium vs Canada: Where To Watch, Live Streaming, Date, Timing, Squad, Lineups, Venue:

Belgium commence their chase of a silverware at this year’s 2022 FIFA World Cup finals against Canada in this Group F fixture. Time is definitely running out for this ‘Golden Generation’ of Belgium, which has the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Thibaut Courtois in their armoury. Despite boasting a squad stacked with glittering individual talent, the Belgian Red Devils have often failed to click at the most important time of a major tournament.

However, Roberto Martinez probably has a last chance to win a major international trophy with this group, as many of them have already hinted towards a retirement before the 2026 World Cup. Though the 2024 EUROs will also be in his sights, but another disappointing World Cup campaign will surely be it for Martinez. Their captain Eden Hazard, who often has been a main pillar alongside the likes of De Bruyne and Lukaku, is not in a form he would have liked to be, being a mere benchwarmer with his club Real Madrid. He needs to step up, if Belgium are to go as deep as they can in Qatar.

Canada meanwhile are playing their first FIFA World Cup game in 36 years as they will hope to make the most out of it. A team fired by youngsters, Canada evidently fear none, as they showcased it in their qualifying campaign where they scored the most goals and conceded the fewest. They have nothing to lose here in Qatar, but a lot to gain.

This inexperienced Canada side can use this 2022 FIFA World Cup to amass a massive experience of playing at the highest level, to build their foundation for 2026, when they co-host the tournament along with the USA and Mexico. Many of their current youngsters in the likes of Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David would be at their peak by that time, and a significant home support could further help them to reach new heights.
